A LOOK AT HOW AMERICANS HAVE USED NATURAL RESOURCES TO
CREATE THE INSTITUTION OF THE FAMILY
People have a need to gather together to fulfill both emotional and physical needs. In primitive societies people needed one another just to survive in the world. One can see how various peoples have looked to their environment to create their basic needs of food and shelter.

As we study the evolution from primitive to complex societies we can easily see how people have used whatever materials were available to them to meet their needs. The role of the family has also evolved over time. A look at the relationships between male and female, parent and child, extended families and communities in general have evolved along through time as the societies have developed from primitive to complex.
